Re: What about your other kids ?
My older kids who were 9 and 10 at the time my last was born, just this past march, were with us in the delivery room during my whole labor and delivery.
My other two, who were 17 months and 3 where with my parents. My parents live close by though.
If they did not, i would have brought them with me. My DH could have easily taken care of them during my labor. I had a doula so she helped me with my pain managament and massage, so DH just stood there. LOL
Could you get a doula to help you and have DH be with your son, in the room or take him out if needed?
